The last purchase I guess was Simpsons Comics #16 and 17. They only cost £0.99 each in eBay auctions.
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Ivan on February 15, 2012, 04:22:48 AM
Just bought:

Heroes Anonymous #1 - 5
Fleener #1 - 2
Sergio Aragones Funnies #6
Roswell #1 - 5
Futurama Comics #40 (the last one I need for a full set)

Bought through mycomicshop.com, I tried using your affiliate link so you could get discounts but it was confusing the hell out of me and kept timing out and whatnot so I have no idea if it worked on your end :(

No. It didn't. If it timed out, then it wouldn't have done. Sometimes browsers can throw time out errors, even though the server is online, so trying another browser would be worth a shot.

Yeah it was really annoying me. I would get to the end of the checkout process and then it would throw me right back to the start. It took me about 7 shots before it got through to the confirmation page (luckily it did only charge me once). So friggin annoying.

Just made the purchase for Simpsons Comics 187. :P

Heh. Just scored Simpsons Comics 75, 76 and 79, Bart Simpson #10 and Radioactive Man 106. :P

Heh. Just scored Simpsons Comics 75, 76 and 79, Bart Simpson #10 and Radioactive Man 106. :P

This parcel came today, but #79 turned out to be the UK edition, not the US edition like I was expecting. Given that the amount I paid in most cases would've only gotten me one issue, I'm fine with that. I can sell it on again later with the other 198 UK issues. :P

/me is currently bidding £0.10 each on Super Spectacular #1 and THOH #11. :P

There's a few days yet though.
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Gary on March 01, 2012, 12:11:28 PM
^ I also threw in Bart Simpson #24 into the 10p mix. But Super Spectacular #1 was raised to £3.20.

I also lost the 80pg Radioactive Man Colossal and THOH #4. :(

I've found a lot of all Bongo Free For All's too. But for now, I'm only keeping watch, and I'll bid in a few days. :P

Bart Simpson # 68
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Ivan on March 09, 2012, 06:02:22 AM
My order from My Comic Shop arrived!

Futurama #40 (now have a complete set)
Sergio Aragones Funnies #6 (now just need #1)
Fleener #1
Fleener #2
Heroes Anonymous #1
Heroes Anonymous #2
Heroes Anonymous #3
Heroes Anonymous #4
Roswell #2
Roswell #3
Roswell #4
Roswell #5
Hopster's Tracks #1

The two Zongo books (Fleener) are pretty weird. All black and white, the letters are all hand-written. The first issue has no talking whatsoever, and the panels are tiny for a comic (they look like there could be as many as 10 or 12 per page). Hopster's is completely black and white, but has dialogue. Roswell and Heroes looked the most interesting, Roswell is a standard full-colour comic, but Heroes is black and white plus only a single shade of color used per issue (for example, one issue uses blue tints, the next uses red, the next uses green, etc). Can't wait to have time to sit down and read them.

Roswell is quit funny. It is a parody of US peoples craziness about little green men from outer space, and technology as a whole back in the 50'ies. Things go completely mad at times. I have 1 to 4 in one book.

I recently bought Bart Simpson 69, but because I didn't have the money in my paypal account rather than having to use my bank, I have to wait until around the 28th before the guy will mail it, which is fair, as he's waiting for the cheque to clear.
Title: Re: Your latest purchases

Ralph Wiggum comics #1 (In mint conditioner)
Simpsons Comics #188
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Gary on March 27, 2012, 07:50:51 PM
My latest score is Simpsons Comics #2 and Simpsons Comics #30.
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Gary on April 01, 2012, 04:33:45 PM
I just made a nice haul of Simpsons Comics #1 straight through to #72 for £50.

According to the prices used on MyComicShop.com, those 72 would be worth about £400, which is a nice 700% profit. :P

I'm gonna wait on another auction of Radioactive Man Comics before I ask my old man for the funding. :P
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Gary on April 02, 2012, 05:57:34 PM
I also managed to get the Radioactive Man set as well consisting of #1, #4, #100, #106, #222, #575, #679, #1000, and the Movie Adaption.

My collection got a pretty nice boost: http://garygadsdon.com/stuff/comics.html

The Movie Adaption was the main one I was after, as I couldn't find it anywhere and would probably have been one of the hardest for me to get a hold of.
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Leif on April 02, 2012, 07:08:41 PM
Strange how they number those Radioactive Man comics. But i guess it is just for the laugh of it.
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Gary on April 02, 2012, 08:42:58 PM
They numbered them as if they were actual Radioactive Man comics in universe. So basically think of as comics that Bart Simpson himself would have collected.

My copy of Simpsons Comics 192 came today since I'm behind due to lack of funds. I'm actually two issues behind with the Bart Simpson line, I'm yet to buy 72 and 73 (the latter came out today, so I'm excused right? :P)
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Leif on July 25, 2012, 04:44:03 PM
Simpsons Comics 192? That has just landed at my local comic book guy store. But i am holding a bit back since that Radioactive Man did cost more then i expected. to use today.
Title: Re: Your latest purchases

Post by: Gary on August 19, 2012, 08:27:58 PM
I've fallen behind on my comic collecting, so I made up for it by getting Simpsons Comics 193, Bart Simpson 72 and 73. Tried to get Illustrated #3 but nowhere has it in the UK at the moment..
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Leif on August 21, 2012, 05:02:56 PM
Illustrated #3 hasn't shown up here either. But i am planing to hit the local comic book store later this week. So let's see.
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Gary on August 21, 2012, 05:51:12 PM
I don't really want to have to import it... So I might message A Place in Space, a comic book store I use located in Croydon if they can grab a copy for me to buy off them.

Failing that, you can buy two copies and I'll buy the second off you, with European postage. :P

One shop on eBay in Nebraska is trying to charge £20 for postage... WTF.

Just bought:

Simpsons Comics 73 and 74 as well as Simpsons Illustrated 3 and 4 from MyComicShop.com to get Illustrated up to date and to fill a small gap with Simpsons Comics where it jumped from 72 to 75. No UK store on ebay stocked Illustrated anymore...

That'll take a couple of weeks.

I also got Bart Simpson 76, Maggie Comic (Aragones Cover) and Simpsons Comics 196.

I had a little catching up to do. :P
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Gary on November 28, 2012, 09:57:26 AM
And I just added Bart Simpson 77 to the mix, and because my current box is full, I bought a second one.

So my collection is coming along rather nicely if I fill my first box. :P
Title: Re: Your latest purchases
Post by: Leif on November 28, 2012, 12:38:32 PM
Heh, i did get the Maggie cartoon. But my stomach is giving me trouble today. Couldn't keep yesterdays food down. So i am not going anywhere buying stuff today.
